8:43 am
the defense agency, put out speaking points on the initial intelligence assessment. i think that was possibly a mistake. and i agree you have to take a good look as to whether our intelligence, particularly in the nine middle eastern countries, very troubled from within is what it should be. and having said that -- . >> in this. >> critical, but it's also very difficult. how do you get at it -- access in terrorist groups? there is no reason for us to operate an embassy or a council without adequate protection. if the whole country can't do it, then we need to do it. >> dianne feinstein's running for re-election, but the vase far from high profile this time around. according to the most recent cbs 5 poll by survey usa, she

leads the republican challenger by a 54-35% margin. >> and we're hoping to speak with the other speaker to -- candidate. >> we'll have more with dianne feinstein as show talks about her career and what she hopes to do if she's re-elected. meanwhile, democrats and republicans are battling it out in the swing states all over the country. one place the conservatives have it rough is in san francisco. one of the most liberal cities in the country. >> and in case didn't know, there is a small and spirited group of republicans in san francisco. a chance to ask the vice chair what it's like being a republican among so many democrats, liberals, and independents. >> it's interesting trying to talk to people. a lot of people here will listen but sometimes we do street fairs and we have fairs and people are rude to us. >> so you have to develop a very thick skin. >> yes, you do. you do. and in all fairness, some of
8:45 am
the liberals are descent people. >> and looking at the ballot right now, election coming up in a little over two weeks. what are the major issues at question? >> here in the city, we're looking at proposition f, which is probably the worst and silliest proposition to come down the pike in years. this has really bad repercussions if this passes, if they take on our water supply. >> any hopes for a resurgence of the republican party in san francisco? could this ever happen? >> i pray for that every night. we could, we making inroads little-by-little. we do pretty well. we're, to be honestly, we're fairly moderate group of republicans as republicans know. we do well. we get along well and people, when they listen to us, they go, yeah, that is a good idea. the trick is getting them to listen. >> any other differences to
8:46 am

8:53 am
on greater importance, thann years past. with the third and ebate . it looks like the debates for the presidential race are taking a greater importance than in years past. >> that's right, for the third and final debate tomorrow, i sat down to ask them at this point whether or not the debates really matter and whether or not they still un -- there are still undecided voters out there. the answer? >> i think there are undecided voters. i don't think the debates will have anything to do with what they will make for their choice. >> what is the point of the last debate? >> the point is to drive your own voters to the polls. create enthusiasm so that it becomes, with all kinds of religious fervor, to go vote for me. >> this is interesting. they have been the theatre and they're going to be what is rememberd about this campaign. >> more than we thought after he totally fell down on the first one.
8:54 am
he came back in the second, one- 1 and this is the final argument before the guys go to the polls. obama better bring it. because mitt romney now is, for the first time, at 50% in the gallop poll. >> what was it about the debates that are different than the past presidential debates? >> i think the increased use of mean. in television and television ads created the opportunity for each drive to sell everybody on the idea that there was a super bowl about to happen in the world of politics. people believed it. that -- . >> that would show the first one, obama stumbled and lost votes on that. >> no question. his base really had a moment of doubt about him, i think, and he came back. but it's the most expensive, most negative campaign in history. the reason these debates have resonated so much is the voters got to see them out for a lengthy periodup filtered talking to each -- period
8:55 am
unfiltered talking to each other. >> a lot of supporters were showing up at the first debate to watch the final coffin, final nail in the coffin for their guy. he was finished, so to speak. and low and behold, there was resurrection. >> this is interesting. as carla points out, this is the most expensive presidential campaign we have had. when you cross the state line into nevada, it's been non-stop commercials in that state for months. >> yeah. >> and at the end, everyone's where they were at the beginning, and it came down to the 90 minutes of free time on the tv where you actually got to look at these two. >> that's right. and now, i mean, going into the final, and this is what is interesting. we're back at ground zero. we're back at dead heat. all of that drama that we have had over the past whatever months, it's now, everything's been reset andd in the final weeks, they debate again. >> and no presidential campaign has ever used as much money as is being used in this
8:56 am
presidential campaign. barack obama who is underfinanced by comparison, over $1 billion s being spent by him. you can imagine what the other side -- . >> what is ironic is where all of the $2 billion plus that in the end, or maybe it's heartfelt, in the end, it's going to come down to how america views the two guys as they actually debate. who would have thought? >> and also, it said something about america's feeling about the media. we keep hearing that they feel like the media is filtering the candidates and this is a chance to see them totally unfiltered without any kind of ed it, and i think it -- edit, and it says something about how america wants to hear directly from the two guys. >> and don't forget. we really do love bare-knuckle fighting. >> that's right. [ laughter ] >> put it well. >> and speaking of bare-knuckle fighting, in our next half
8:57 am
hour, we're going to discuss the knockdown and dragouts of the what is going on here in the bay area. >> and speaking of battle zones, the big game held yesterday in the newly remodeled memorial staid. >> um. and it was the 115th meeting between the cal bears and stanford cardinals. a big game. it was stanford, however, big from the start. from early on. the cardinals would outgain the bears 475-217 yards out rushing them, 253-3 yards and never lost its gripe -- grip on the coveted axe. stanford keeps the axe and wins 21-3. and while san jose state bounced back with a 52-24 victory on the road over texas- san antonio and touchdown, san jose, ssu, 5-2. and the oakland raiders, all right. they going to be hoping jacksonville jack -- hosting the jacksonville jack wars this
